Dunstable Downs International Kite Festival 2012

The 14th & 15th July saw the first ever two day kite festival at the National Trust’s Dunstable Downs site.  Saturday was wet with very light winds but Sunday was bright andsunny with lots of wind.  We flew lots of routines and made a lot of noise with 6 North Shore Radicals!

This year The Flying Squad were delighted to be able to host Belgian kite designer Jos Valcke and his wonderful kites at the festival.  Jos’s kites added a real splash of colour and an international flavour to our favourite flying site.  Joined on Sunday by Sebastian Jüttemeier the sky was filled to bursting.
